As an architectural practice we were approached in 2013 by East Hants to be one of their selected Local Authority Building Control Partners. The Partnership means that our applications are dealt with by a dedicated Building Control Officer, providing us with a consistency of approach and reducing application time.
Below are some of our commercial clients along with some examples of our domestic projects.

A small extension that dramatically enhanced this character property. Installing folding doors opened up the garden to the house and the screened terrace makes the house feel spacious. Render finish gives the rear elevation a banded townhouse look. Simple effective design that transformed a property for a small budget.
Taking the clients brief of a sun room and garden redesign, we created this dramatic contemporary extension on site with the client and contractor during construction. Setting the header at the right level and proportion gave the design the right weight. A really enjoyable collaborative project which the designer, contractor and most importantly, the client were all delighted with.
Oak Ashes Barn
Fully project managed with the contractor due to the client not being in the country for the build. Good communication was key to producing the right finishes. With the removal of a couple of walls we opened up the first floor to a better layout and did away with the fussy existing decor in favour of simple off-white which lets the beautiful timbers show themselves off. Simple wall washing lighting sets off the high ceilings after dark.
Tricky roof design with differing pitches and challenging angles for a quality roof tile. This wrap-around extension worked out really well and matching the tiles in tone, rather than size, with the existing worked.
Reasonably simple extension, but great care needed to be taken to blend the new roof and brickwork in with the existing house. We took some elements from the existing house, such as the barn hip and ridge tiles, which makes the extension look convincingly original.
Single storey rear extension. Simple but effective design improved the rear elevation and floor plan.
Major renovation created a spacious home.
